After one year without fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sonoma will open its doors to the general public for the NASCAR races that’ll take place on the weekend of June 5 / 6.

“We are thrilled to be able to open our gates and welcome fans back to the raceway for our annual NASCAR race weekend in June,” said Jill Gregory, Sonoma Raceway Executive Vice President, and General Manager.

“We are fortunate to have a beautiful, outdoor facility that is perfect for social distancing and will provide a safe and memorable race-day experience for our guests. We look forward to welcoming the greatest fans and drivers in motorsports back to Northern California.”

Martin Truex Jr. expressed positive opinions about the announcement, saying it will be great to try the “three-peat” with fans.

“I’ve been waiting for a while to go back to Sonoma and try to get the three-peat,” said Truex Jr.

“I’m excited to hear that we’ll have fans in attendance. Sonoma is such a fun track and it’s a great part of the country. It’s beautiful and always great weather. I can’t wait to get there in June and see all of our fans in California that we haven’t seen in quite a while,” he concluded.

COVID-19 protocols, which include face mask requirements, social distancing and cashless transactions, will remain in place for Sonoma’s weekend.
